True for US models (for sure), but only as a ‘first full year’… as there are factory ’66 Beetles with 12V, though they are fewer. I have one of these. There are a number of things that are special about the ’67, one year only Door Handles, one year only front fenders, one year only wheels. ’67 is one of my favorite, and was the first year I owned.
Obviously your Jedi Powers are far more advanced than mine on this issue. I’m sure we both agree that VW rules all. Fire up that noisy ass Bug and record a show on the road!
